Muslims are being asked to don new ‘Union Jack Mosque hats’ in a bid to make themselves look more British.

The new proposal in a leaked Government memo comes on the back of a new drive to instil a new level of ‘Britishness’ into the Muslim community.

The mosque hat, paid for by the taxpayer would have the union jack design on top of it and Muslims would be forced to wear them to prayers.

One anti-terrorism think tank said the idea had a lot of mileage, “I think it is a fantastic proposal as it will make people look and feel more British.

“We think this is the real problem here...Muslims simply do not look British enough.”

The memo goes on to say the mosque hats would come in several designs: Extremist, Radical, Mainstream and Sell Out.
